How do you ask a friend out if you don't know if they like you back?

And you don't want to lose your friendship if they reject you?

Depends on how old you are. If you're old enough to take them out to dinner, I'd suggest asking them to dinner. It may kick off from there. If you're too young to be paying for dinner yourself, you're too young to be dating. Period.

You must be confident with yourself, ask him/her out, and if she/he says no, then just try saying you still wish to be friends, this takes confidence, but I promise you it'll turn out alright/

Have they given you any signs as to possibly having an interist in you?

We are so close, I wouldn't be able to tell. I mean sure, he does things people would generally consider flirting but for him I kinda think its normal? Idk. He hugs me all the time and tries to get close to me but idk if that really means anything.
Report as
It doesn't always mean anything, I give hugs to atleast 3 of my friends that are girls, but I have no boyfriend-girlfriend feelings for any of them. But generally, yes, that is a sign.

Like he hugged me 6 times in one night....
Report as
Yeah, that still might not mean anything, just keep a good eye out for other flirting signs(Like I know a lot of people who do stuff while their not watching, try and turn around very fast to try and catch him if he does any of these things)

Okay. Thanks. :)

Well, how long have you been their friend? If it's been a long time, than I guess you guys would be more attached to each other and I'd be okay to ask them out but, if It's only been for a little while, wait. If you're that daring person, than give it a try...

I have known him for as long as I can remember.... I feel like this is turning into a cheesy boy next door thing (but he doesn't live next door).
Report as
Oh, I see. And no, I don't think it's like "the boy next door" if you really like him, than I really think you should ask him out. (: Really.

Okay. Thanks. :)

Okay, I just thought of a line you could say to your friend. Just start talking about this guy you like (which is your friend) then you could say this:

You: so how do I tell him that I eant to ask him out?
Ur friend: just ask him out. (He might say something else)
You: ok, lets practice on you.
Ur friend: okay.
You: will you got out with me?
Ur friend: yes, now go tell him!
You: I just did.

I know this sounds cheesy, but its the only thing I could think of.

What if he doesn't fall for it and knows what you are doing?
Report as
Than.. I guess you'll just tell him straight on.
Report as
I guess you'll have to tell him straight on.

If they are your true friend, it may be awkward for a bit if they reject you, but if they are true friends, they will always be your friend. As for an exact answer, only you can truly decide how to ask them out. I did it a really corny way, told her to get on a game, told her I liked her, and dipped off for 5 hours, got back on, and she surprised me on that game...(Let's leave it at that ;) )
